Cavs Sign John Holland To Two-Way Contract

SEPTEMBER 8: The Cavs have officially signed Holland to the first two-way contract in franchise history, the team announced today in a press release.

SEPTEMBER 7: The Cavaliers have agreed to a deal with John Holland, international basketball reporter David Pick tweets. The small forward was a training camp invitee of the Cavs last year, as well.

While Holland put forth an impressive campaign in the G League last season, his only previous taste of regular season NBA action came in 2015/16 when he played one lone minute in one single game for the Celtics (during which he hoisted and missed a three).

More recently, while suited up for Cleveland’s minor league affiliate in Canton, the 28-year-old took home the Impact Player of the Year award for 2016/17 and earned nod on the league’s All-NBA G League Third Team.

While the terms of the agreed upon deal haven’t been disclosed, it’s possible that the Cavs slot Holland into one of their vacant slots for two-way players (Update: Joe Vardon of has since confirmed as much).
